Is gardening a part of your summer plans? Not only does it provide a great scene, but also a nutritious one! A fresh garden can provide salads, summer vegetables and plenty of physical activity along the way. Try adding eggplant to your garden this year. Grilled, baked or roasted, eggplant is an excellent source for fiber and manganese.
